The medium term concern is that they have to make a transition to making money from not just one device.  They will face margin compression.  The stock is not expensive.  They have a rock solid balance sheet.

A cheap stock. It is a great company, because it has lots of cash, a great installed base, and continues to come out with new forms. Their Cloud and services business will continue to grow. You are not paying a lot for this.  Expects they will continue to increase the dividend. A little bit of an issue is with Trump wanting manufacturing to be done in the US, so phones will cost a lot more. Trading at 12X forward earnings with a dividend of 2%.

Likes this at the current valuation. He had been a bear on it ever since the watch came out. Apple has been given 2 gifts. Samsung Galaxy 7 was a really strong product, and would have been tough competition for iPhone 7, an evolutionary, not revolutionary product for Apple. When Samsung’s phones started catching fire, that was it for them. The 2nd gift was president elect Trump. If he is able to open up a tax holiday, where companies can repatriate their offshore cash, that is going to be a home run for this company. They have $236 billion in cash, with about 90% of it held offshore. 2017 will be the 10th anniversary that the initial iPhone was produced, so expect a huge product from this company at that time.

Technology in general tends to do well from October through to January. There are some technical concerns on this. Even though we are in the period of seasonal strength for technology, this really hasn’t benefited with the other economically sensitive names, post the Trump election rally. There was a trend break, and it is starting to curl over again at about the 50-day moving average. The market is telling you that that intermediate level of resistance is going to hold, and could potentially turn lower.

Not a fan right now. They peaked their ROC in 2012, which was 30%. With the trailing 4 quarters, the ROC is 15%, so the ROC has been cut in half. In fairness to them, they have a lot of cash on their balance sheet that they don’t know what to do with, and he would like them to dividend that back out. The cycle for smart phones is probably getting old. He would prefer other places to put your money.

The iPhone is now in a much more mature state but will grow their earnings into the next year.  The effect of the election is not known at this time.  $220 of $240 Billion dollars of their cash reserves are in Ireland.  If there was a tax holiday on repatriated earnings it would be positive for Apple.  He thinks it will grow this year but feels you need clarity in the policies of the government before you see a big lift in it.

2016-11-15 COMMENT John Burke

His office is divided on this. He is not a big fan, but his staff seems to like it better. He wonders if Apple can maintain the huge profit margins that they have. This is expensive, not from the point of view of the P/E ratio, but from the point of view of huge profit margins. It has been very unusual for companies like this to charge such high prices relative to their competitors for electronic goods. His concern is that they won’t be able to keep doing that for too much longer, in which case the stock would not do very well. It is a really tough stock to call, and he would rather invest in different ideas.

The bloom is a little off the name now, so he has deployed money elsewhere. The ecosystem is really important to this name now, and it is less of a hardware story.

This has been a teeter totter ride. They have lots of cash on hand. He is expecting them to announce a dividend increase, and potentially a one-time special dividend. The service’s side of the iTunes-I store business is generating enough revenue to becoming a Fortune 500 company all on its own. Don’t expect this to grow as much is it has in the past. Looking at its valuation, the dividend it pays, the cash it has, it is very difficult to find companies of that quality with that kind of cash and balance sheet, and trading at that multiple.

In order for this to work well as an investment, historically it has been necessary for there to be a lot of pent-up demand for phones. Some of the subsequent launches of phones since iPhone 6, has been that not so many phones have been “end-of-life”.

(A Top Pick Aug 26/15. Down 2.3%.) After the latest quarter, the obituary has been retracted for now. This is a company and a stock that everyone has an opinion on. It is a highly bifurcated view in that they really love it, or don’t like it at all. You have to remember that this is a company that has been adopted by a great many people as their way of adopting the mobile experience. Thinks that iPhone 7 coming this fall, will be very, very successful. Valuation is extremely attractive, 30% of their market capitalization is in cash, and it is trading at a single digit multiple.

Everyone is in love with it because of what it did in the past.  There have been only moderate innovations since Steve Jobs passed away.  He does not see where future growth is going to come from.

I don't understand why the experts keep saying this is a cheap company. The stock is over $600 per share. That's not cheap!
